In the lead up to the full schedule release on Wednesday, Dec. 19, Bands of America has been releasing one venue and date on its Facebook page each day. As more dates and locations are announced, we'll continue to update the competitions page on our website.

So far, Bands of America has announced a Johnson City Regional, located just 30 minutes from consistent national finalist Dobyns-Bennett, to be held at ETSU's Mini-Dome (officially named the East Tennessee State University/Mountain States Health Alliance Athletics Center). The regional, which will be held Oct. 12, marks BOA's return to the Mini-Dome for the first time since 2003, when ETSU's football program was cancelled. The football program was reinstated for the 2015 season, but did not use the Mini-Dome, instead playing its games at a local high school stadium for two years before moving to the new William B. Greene Jr. Stadium.

The Orlando Regional will again be held at Camping World Stadium, following a successful return to the Sunshine State in 2018. The regional will be held Oct. 12.

BOA also confirmed the previously released dates and venues for the San Antonio Super Regional and Grand National Championships: Nov. 1–2 at the Alamodome and Nov. 14–16 at Lucas Oil Stadium, respectively.

The following schedule contains dates for many fall events, including those operated by BOA and independently-organized regional-quality events. As other events and dates are announced and confirmed, they will be added to the schedule below. If you have any contest information you think we should add, shoot us an email at or fill out this brief form.
